Frankies' Meatballs

I'll have to check out the cookbook-
I made with 1/2 cup grated parmesan. Made these last night- they were fantastic. Thanks.

Fernet Branca

Have you tried Bourbon in Adams Morgan? I'm pretty sure they have it there...

Alice Waters Annoys Everyone Again

Maybe Alice came across as 'a dreamer' or unrealistic- but her ideas about public health are true money savers in the long run. Like the tone of this administration- Alice believes in investing in public health. $5 per pound tomatoes are expensive- but a healthy diet can save tens of thousands of dollars in health care costs per person. Consider the cost of medications, procedures, doctors visits and hospital stays associated with obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cancer. The package may sound elitist- but her message to stay away from processed foods can be affordable on any budget- including food stamps. Education is key.

Burger King Takes a Cue from Borat

I think this is one of the stupidest things I've seen in months. Let's use a helicopter to bring a broiler to cultures who have subsisted (for hundreds of years) on local, organic, sustainable food. People who have a fraction of our obesity related problems. Let's feed them this highly processed product and act surprised that they don't know what it is. How elitist, obnoxious, and stupid can you be? Fast food does not taste like food. Did you notice many tasters had 'no preference'? Very polite of them.
